French President Emmanuel Macron hit with egg in Lyon, perpetrator taken away by security - ABC News

French President Emmanuel Macron has been hit on the shoulder by an egg thrown at him during a visit to an international food trade fair in the French city of Lyon. 

A video of the incident, widely shared on the social media on Monday, shows Mr Macron walking through the crowd when an egg bounced off him without breaking.

Two bodyguards can then be seen immediately getting closer to the President to protect him.

The video also shows a man being taken away from the scene by other bodyguards. 


Reporters at the scene heard Mr Macron saying: "If he has something to tell me, then he can come."

No details have been released by authorities on the identity or the motivations of the man.

It is not the first time this year the French President has been attacked by a member of the public.

In June, Mr Macron was slapped in the face by a man as he was greeting the public in a small town in south-eastern France.

The man could be heard shouting "Down with Macronia" when he delivered the slap to Mr Macron's face.

He then denounced "violence" and "stupidity."

The slap prompted a wide show of support for France's head of state from politicians across the ideological spectrum.

Mr Macron, like his predecessors, enjoys spending time in meet-and-greets with members of the public. Called "crowd baths" in French, they have long been a staple of French politics.

A little over six months before France's next presidential election, Mr Macron, 43, has not yet announced his re-election bid but is expected to do so.
